Hello all,

I am a 21 year old college student with no past health problems. I'm 6'2 about 180 lbs.

I realized I was starting to feel very fatigued around mid July 2010. I thought nothing of it until it persisted until late August, when I went to my family Dr. He tested me for Lyme, Mono and my B12 all came back fine. After a heavy night of drinking, I woke up with an onslaught of symptoms.

-Pressure behind eyes
-Numbness/tingling in extremities
-Major fatigue (started sleeping 15 hrs a day)
-Major concentration/memory problems
-And my worst symptom: this constant dizzy, woozy, drunk/drugged like feeling, I feel as if I am very intoxicated, its like an altered state of mind
-Muscle and sometimes facial twitching
-Congestion (this has been chronic)
-Sensitivity to light

I am an A student, at the top of my class at my University. I had job offers from top financial firms in the country. I have had to withdraw from school because of how bad everything is, there is no way I can sit in class I can't remember a think and I feel as if I'm drunk or high all the time, not to mention the major fatigue.

I've had tons of blood work, an EEG, MRI of brain and cervical spine both with and without contrast. I've been examined by an Opthamologist, neurologist, and an ENT. Nobody has found anything abnormal. I do not do any illegal drugs, and I can assure you I don't and never had any depression or anxiety issues. I was a completely normal kid, had the perfect life and everything has been taken away from me. I've always been in great shape and an athlete my whole life. Please if anyone can help me get my life back I would so greatly appreciate it. Nobody will help me, I'm literally wasting away in bed all day, it has been 3 months. Any help would be great! Thank you in advance
